About CivicGeorgia

A Community Empowerment Practice

CivicGeorgia is a BIPOC-led advocacy organization striving to amplify the voice, frequency, and impact of community-led efforts for progress. We are uniquely powered by a collaborative of grassroots organizers who lead a coalition of communities, movements, and organizations around our state. Since 2017, we have acted to achieve equity & justice through & in civic engagement. 

Our Focus

The CivicGeorgia collaborative works on our communities’ most pressing fights for justice, including equitable civic empowerment, racial equity across all spheres of life, environmental justice, health access, housing, and resource mapping for working families impacted by COVID. 

Who We Are & Serve 

We are dedicated to civic participation by and voice for everyone in our state, with intentional inclusivity for our most silenced communities- Black, Indigenous, and People of Color Georgians, our unhoused sisters and brothers, immigrant and refugee families, adopted people, LGBTQ+ folx, people of varying ability and neurodiversity statuses & identities, young people, seniors, currently and formerly incarcerated people, intersectional communities, and the many of us who are ‘othered’.

Our Approach

We are especially recognized for our creative, partnership-based approaches to unlocking and expanding the capacity for civic action in our communities. Through these efforts we have helped register & mobilize tens of thousands of Georgians to vote and empowered even more folx in all forms of civic participation. 

Our Work

Building Civic Infrastructure

We're civic engineers, working on anti--voter-suppression advocacy, voter registration, civic education including candidate guides & forums, voter mobilization, poll worker recruitment, & civic celebration - all to empower Georgians to be informed, active participants in our democracy.

Advocacy & Grassroots Organizing

Community-led advocacy for issues affecting our silenced communities: dialoguing, rallying, movement-building, issue-specific civics training, and working to effect change. We're also building tools to democratize advocacy.

Partner Support

Consulting with partners like social justice organizations, schools & universities, service agencies, and community-minded businesses on community-building and educational programs.
